I am no fan of trial lawyers and neither is Harriet Miers. According the Washington Post, Miers once persuaded then-Governor Bush to veto a bill that would have forbidden the Texas State Supreme Court to limit trial lawyer fees. If the bill became law, Miers wrote Bush, "once again Texas would be required to hang its head in shame for circumstances driven by a handful of greedy, but immensely rich and powerful lawyers." She further criticized the bill as "a blatant attempt to shield, protect and curry favor with interests that have brought shame on this state, badly hurt our economic development efforts directed at creating jobs and continue to this day to cause our state to be held in disrepute for `justice for sale.'" With sentiments like these, Meiers can't be all bad.
